I just found the cover of Greer Gilman’s Cloud & Ashes in the Locus Directory of Cover Artists (over halfway down).
Issue 41 of Andromeda Spaceways is now available in PDF. It comes with two versions of my name, so it may be a collector’s item :)
And Issue 2 of Exhibition Hall (steampunk fanzine) is up at Efanzines.com. It has a review of Continuum which includes one of my sketches.
And last month’s book reviews will be up… soon. I’m aiming for before next month.
It might be a collector’s item anyway. It’s a very good issue!
The secret life of back yards sounds fascinating.
It is! Basically, it was posited that Brisbane seems really boring, and then you find out that there’s a lot going on, but it’s all in backyards, and the push to high density urban living (apartment blocks) will destroy the secret city.
(If anyone is lost – this is a conversation about the next post :)
Thanks for letting us know that issue is now available – I’d been watching for it!
You’re welcome. My reasons for posting it were not at all personal :)
I have now read Splendour Falls. Wow, what a story. I have to say the ending caught me completely off guard; it was something like a sci-fi story O. Henry would have written. Very, very well done and I am so glad I got to read it.
The cover of issue 41 is something else, too. In a way it reminded me of your story, though I realize it is by another artist.
Oh, thank you Will! I’m so glad you read it and liked it and thank you for your comments! High praise, too – O. Henry is one of the writers I cite when trying to explain the *style* of short story that works best for me, so it means a lot (as did your reading it!).
